Witchcraft Sites in Danvers

Halloween's right around the corner, and while Salem gets all the headlines--and the tourists--because of it's association with the witch trials of 1692, the whole hysteria actually began in Salem Village (which today is Danvers). So if you want to escape the crowds, and find some authentic witchcraft-era historical sites, head to Danvers. Check out the article I wrote for yesterday's travel section of The Boston Globe for more information.

On another note related to the Globe, I'm going to be a regular contributor to the Globe's travel blog, Globe-trotting. Most of my posts are going to be on sports travel, and my first post is about the tours of Yankee Stadium that are still being offered even though the pinstripers' season has been done for quite some time.
